This fruit is dangerously addictive and literally dangerous. Quenepas are everywhere in Puerto Rico and are sold in fruit stands all along the roads and highways.The tough outer shell bursts easily between your teeth with just the slightest pressure revealing a slick, fleshy pulp clinging to a pit. The texture feels tendered, but the fruit tastes of sweet lime and roses. Eating it is dangerous, since the smooth seed can easily slip down a throat when attempting to suck juicy pulp. After a while, the tannins in the shell left the tips of our tongues feeling like they, too, had been sucked on.
